The 12th International Workshop on Anomalies in Hydrogen Loaded Metals is taking place in Italy in a few days. The following link http://iscmns.org/work12/program.htm is the provisional schedule of presentations.
The following is from a “Road Map” for Developing Engineering Applications of LENR Technologies,” by I. Goryachev, a retired scientist from the Russian research center “Kurchatov Institute” in Moscow. The experimental results of the LENR phenomenon now urgently require that practical applications be developed.My presentation demonstrates several important technologies that can be realized in the near future.These technologies go in the following directions:
Generation of ecologically clean and safe heat
Generation of ecologically clean and safe electricity
Complete neutralization of nuclear waste
Cheap and ecologically clean desalination of seawater
Neutralization of toxic gases and toxic waste
Production of precious and rare metals by using cheap starting materials (note by LENR-supported transmutation)
Production of new special materials and alloys
Use of LENR radiation for technical and medical applications
The Powerpoint presentation will present 11 different projects:
A 100 kW water heater unit
A 5 MW generator for electricity
A 120 kW full generator for electricity
A 10 MW power station
A technological complex for the deactivation of radioactive waste and fillings
Technology for the economically effective desalination of seawater
Detoxification of chemical agents
Facilities for the production of stable isotopes
Reactor for the production of gold and special alloys
In an article published at Forbes, Paul Browning, President and CEO of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems America, answers several questions about clean energy production.
“Since 2005 the carbon emissions from the U.S. power sector are down by 23%.”
While there is no mention of LENR, Browning does say that renewables, coupled with battery technology, or clean power sources that remove the problem of carbon emissions, will be the likely energy source of the future. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is actively engaged in LENR and transmutation research.
Andrea Rossi introduced his Ecat (short for energy catalyzer) generator in early 2011 as a tabletop device with an output capacity of about 10,000 watts. The generator seemingly uses cold fusion technology to release energy through the fusion of nickel powder and hydrogen through an unknown catalyst.
The Ecat generator produces heat which is used to power essentially a steam engine. The steam engine can drive an electric generator and so convert the mechanical energy into electrical energy.
The potential uses of Rossi’s Ecat generator are nearly limitless. Ecats could be used to power anything from a passenger car to a rocket. Ecats could be used for personal space heating, air-conditioning, and process heating and cooling.
The Ecat does not possess many of the disadvantages of many power sources. The characteristics of Rossi’s generator include:
1. Low initial cost. Less than $500 per kilowatt,
2. Low operating cost. It uses small quantities of cheap nickel and hydrogen and operation is simple,
3. Safe operation. No radioactivity, and experience in working with hydrogen can contain the risks of handling hydrogen,
4. Waste product is copper, made when nickel is transmuted into copper. Air and water pollution are minimal.
5. The system produces low-cost energy (About 1 cent per kilowatt hour or less), and the system is scalable so it could be made available off the grid and placed outside a home. View the 1 Megawatt Ecat Brochure
